MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation is investigating the death of a Ward County Jail inmate.

The sheriff’s office says the 24-year-old man was found unresponsive in his cell early Monday during a routine check. Despite attempts to revive him, authorities say the man was pronounced dead at a Minot hospital.

Authorities say the man was a passenger in a vehicle stopped by narcotics officers on Friday. He ran away but was arrested and held on warrants that were out for his arrest.

The man gave a Minot address. His name has not been released.
